You can enjoy lots of delicious Cajun crawfish and good times at the Ninth Annual Crawfish Festival on Saturday, April 27.

The Rotary Club of FishHawk-Riverview is proud to present the Ninth Annual Crawfish Festival. Come to the festival to enjoy fun times and all the Cajun seafood you can eat. This is an event you do not want to miss.

“This year is going to be bigger and better,” said Rhonda McDaniel, the organizer of the event. “We will have more vendors with unique and original items and designs. We have new sponsorships this year, like Ferman Mazda and Passion Organic Farm, but last and not least, our title sponsor, Christopher Ligori & Associates, Attorneys at Law, presents the Ninth Annual Crawfish Festival.”

New vendors at the event this year include Gaia Donut with gluten, allergy, dairy and nut-free donuts; Baby Bling Bows with bling shirts, bags, skirts and more; Billy’s Original Grillscarf; RAZZLEDAZZLE Barbershop; Moonshine Sunglasses; Everlasting Gifts Inc. with kitchen towels, ponchos and blankets; and Mainstream Boutique. These are just some of the vendors.

There will also be other activities for all ages, such as music by Otis and the Old School Band, face painting and perhaps an obstacle course.
